Part 559d - Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy - 1917 Varsity Baseball Team - Grandfather Gerald "Doc" Doherty

24 August 2011

Morning, has increased the capacity of their online U.S. Yearbook Database. This is tremendous news for those of us who do not had the opportunity to acquire pictures or photos of our grandparents, great-grandparents, and even great-great-grandparents… According to the today’s news release –

The company ( has added nearly 25,000 new yearbooks to the collection, which now totals over 35,000 and carries 155 million records encompassing the years 1884 to 2009. The U.S. Yearbook Collection includes close to seven million images from thousands of U.S. high schools, junior highs, academies, colleges and universities.

And we started looking… and we found in the online copy of the 1917 University of Delaware, The Blue Hen Yearbook and image 242 on Pages 171 and 172, Andy’s Grandfather Gerald “Doc” Doherty.

“Doc” Doherty, our captain, is one of the best all-around players that Delaware has ever had.”

And we would like to know which player, grandfather Doc Doherty is in the picture. Any thoughts and ideas?
